HB Tórshavn - ÍF Fuglafjørður 1-0 (1-0)
1-0 Arnbjørn Hansen
HB just managed to scrape past ÍF with Arnbjørn Hansen’s headed goal after eighth minutes from Alex dos Santos’ cross from the left after ÍF had threatened a couple of times before that.
Five minutes from the end of the first half Adeshina Lawal was played through for a glorious opportunity for ÍF to equalize, but the flat shot aimed at far corner went centimetres wide of the post.
In the second half HB nearly doubled their lead when centre-back Rógvi Holm rattled the crossbar with a powerful header and at the other end HB survived with desperate blocks in succession in front of goal.
With a quarter of an hour remaining, HB left back Jógvan Rói Davidsen was given marching orders for a second bookable offence as he took one for the team, stooping Lawal in a counter attack.
Shortly after, HB road their luck when Bartal Eliasen’s acrobatic finish smashed against the crossbar.
But ÍF advantage lasted under five minutes as Frank Poulsen was given directly red for bringing René S. Joensen down from behind as HB countered.
It wasn’t convincing for HB today, and they’ll have to improve considerably if they intend to beat B36 in the local derby on Sunday.
EB/Streymur - NSÍ Runavík 0-8 (0-2)
0-1 Pól Jóhannus Justinussen
0-2 Haraldur R. Højgaard
0-3 Klæmint Olsen
0-4 Árni Frederiksberg
0-5 Klæmint Olsen
0-6 Einar Tróndargjógv
0-7 Einar Tróndargjógv
0-8 Klæmint Olsen
Not since NSÍ beat 07 Vestur 9-0 in 2011 has a team managed to score eight goals in a match in the top division and it indicates two things: EB/Streymur just don’t have the qualities to stay put while NSÍ do have the qualities to wrap up the title. However, one defining moment could be already on Sunday when NSÍ take on Víkingur. A win for NSÍ could make it almost impossible to catch them again if HB and B36 at the same time draw. But that’s all speculations yet.
However, when Haraldur Højgaard made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time after Pól Jóhannus Justinussen had opened the scoring in the 17h minute, nothing suggested such an 8-0 onslaught as the third goal didn’t come until the 81 minute, but in 11 minutes NSÍ scored SIX goals. Klæmint Olsen scored a hat-trick to take his tally to 16 and is well on his way to smash Uni Arge’s and Súni Fríði Barbá’s records of 24 goals in a season. Einar Tróndargjógv scored a brace while Árni Frederiksberg netted once.
Víkingur - B36 Tórshavn 1-1 (0-0)
1-0 Heðin Hansen
1-1 Gestur B. Dam
After a goalless first half where Lukasz Cieslewicz fired a penalty on the crossbar just before the break, Víkingur took the lead 10 minutes after the restart with a header from Heðin Hansen from Finnur Justinussen’s cross.
But B36 restored parity 10 minutes later after Róaldur Jakobsen’s off target shot had been headed on the post by Eli Falkvard Nielsen and the rebound headed in by Gestur B. Dam.
KÍ Klaksvík - FC Suðuroy 2-1 (0-0)
1-0 Kenan Hajdarevic
1-1 Valerian Lobashvili
2-1 Heðin á Lakjuni
Despite creating chance after chance, KÍ didn’t take the lead until midway through the second half thanks to Kenan Hajdarevic, but the visitors drew level five minutes later through Valerian Lobashvili.
KÍ looked to have paid dearly for a whole host of missed sitters when Heðin á Lakjuni with his 100th league goal snatched the winner more than three minutes into added time.
TB Tvøroyri - AB Argir 1-1 (0-1)
0-1 Álvur F. Christiansen
1-1 Eirikur M. Ellendersen
Having drawn six times each in the previous 12 rounds, another draw hardly comes as a surprise to anybody.
AB went ahead before the half-hour through Álvur Christiansen from a corner, but were cancelled out 20 minutes through the second half with a goal from Eirikur M. Ellendersen.
